Feed your body and calm your mind at Town Tonic, Christchurch’s favourite all-day hangout.
Chef Jamie Bennett (Passengers + Co, Riccarton House Bistro, The Local and creator of the Christchurch Farmers' Market) knows a thing or two about seasonal produce and his menus are like an edible tour of the local region.
For breakfast, tuck into eggs every which way (breakfast tacos, anyone?) or opt for something light and nourishing from the ‘honest’ section. Crushed potatoes with walnut pesto and mushroom parfait is the sort of veggie plate that could get even hardcore carnivores drooling.
The dinner menu is equally inventive. Get stuck into starting plates such as sticky tamarind sprouts before moving on to elegant mains including whole flounder with salty miso and seaweed butter.
Fine Kiwi and Aussie wines and light, bright interiors that will have you reaching for your camera are the icing on what is already a very attractive cake. And with menus changing every six weeks to reflect what’s in season, there’s always a reason for a return visit to Town Tonic!
